This show was a great disappointment. It is not a Broadway caliber show and the two lead characters can not sing or act. DCPA should not have forced this show on their subscribers. It lacks the creativity, talent and energy of Mama Mia which it seems like it was trying to be. I like Jimmy Buffet, but the songs didn't capture his music and the plot is very lame. We have seen more talent at every other Broadway show we have seen or in shows at the Arvada Center, Boulder Dinner Theatre or even Ralston Valley High School Musicals. Have a margarita while listening to Jimmy Buffet instead.

Cringe worthy production. The DCPA needs to be more discerning. This was embarrassing in every qualitative respect, plot, dialogues, voices, sets, choreography, sound, music.

I was there at the Dolby opening night. The stage is shroud in a sheet with a lighting effect to look like water. It looked more like an elementary school production. It was downhill from there. The singers were off key and there was one set with the band members on stage as part of the set. I sat there for an hour thinking - it has to get better. Cheesy story, terrible actors and to top it off - they destroyed my beloved Buffet songs! Jimmy Buffet showed up for the opening night but I can't imagine he sat there through the entire thing. I had an awesome seat right smack in the middle of the theater but it was so bad that I couldn't bear it any longer. I didn't wait for the intermission to leave - along with many others - I had to get out of there and get a drink - not to celebrate the show - but to FORGET this waste of time, money and energy! I can only imagine that it will close very quickly and be only remembered as the WORST Broadway show I've ever seen! Amateur at BEST!

Even with low expectations and a knowledge of the source material music, this is easily the worst musical I have ever seen. It makes the Phantom sequel look like an amazing piece of theater... The writing is just cringe-worthy. Seriously considered leaving during intermission. Hopefully in the minority because others seem to have enjoyed it. But we had people next to us that paid $6 to see the show. You can tell the struggle to sell tickets is real. If we had only paid $6 to see it as well, I might not dislike it as much as I did. If you're a Buffet fan, sure you will prob have a blast. Anyone else, probably not...
